A Guide to maps of Australia in Books Published 1780-1830 – Perry and Prescott

Short Description

A pretty essential accessory to Tooley regarding the mapping of Australia.

Described as an “annotated cartobibliography” compiled by Tom Perry and Dorothy Prescott.

Published by the National Library of Australia in 1996, small quarto, 315 pages with some illustrations. Hardbound, published without a dust jacket, decorative paper covered boards, quality paper, a heavy book.

A supreme effort cataloguing nearly 600 maps and charts of Australia, or parts of Australia. The referencing system is simple and useful, giving the date of publication then order of appearance, and with a reference to Ferguson's Bibliography of all books Australian, if appropriate - e.g. 1824.19 is the 1824 published map of Van Diemen’s Land by Sidney Hall published in Wentworth’s “A Statistical Account of the British settlements in Australasia" (Ferguson 990).

Tom Perry was Reader in Geography at Melbourne University and author of a number of celebrated books on Australian discovery and the charting of Australia. Dorothy Prescott was similarly linked to Melbourne University and at one time held the distinguished position of Map Curator at the National Library of Australia.
